    The Bitcoin Value for Value Thesis with Oscar Merry

    “What we need to move to is just removing the attention signal as the input to the algorithm and using a value-signal instead; because, then we can still have ranked feeds, but they’re no longer driven by a metric that doesn’t really align with the content creator, and doesn’t really align with the listener.”— Oscar Merry
    Oscar Merry is the Founder of Fountain podcasts. In this interview, we discuss how the subscription model on the internet is changing and the power of value for value Bitcoin payments.

Fun and Informative

I really enjoy Peter’s interview style and think he hosts great guests! The latest episode with Bunney was one of my favorites. It included a wide range of topics like parenting, govt. intervention, and Bitcoin, which resulted in a very thought provoking conversation. I always learn from Peter and I appreciate that sometimes his guests and him veer off into other subjects outside BTC because it makes the podcast feel human and natural, not robotic. Peter does a great job to steer the conversation and his enthusiasm on the topic shows.

Wow: macro Alf!!

Awesome bro

Love it

It’s such a easy listen and informative show. I like how Peter has his views but doesn’t try to prove to his guests that he is right.
